2012 Bocanova Birthday Bash

Come Celebrate Bocanova’s 3rd Birthday with OFFTA


Thursday, August 30, 2012

Bocanova, Jack London Square’s trendiest restaurant and OFFTA’s favorite community partner, has once again offered to host OFFTA’s Fall Fundraiser event. Besides its spectacular food and signature wines, Bocanova also boasts the best waterside venue in the East Bay. It’s a great place for a late afternoon party!

So mark your calendar for Thursday evening starting at 6pm on August 30th! Get your tickets early, because this is a sell-out event EVERY year. Enjoy food, wine, unusual gifts, travel opportunities — AND OFFTA’s unforgettable Instant Wine Cellar raffle — at our Silent Auction during the cocktail hour. It’s fun, it’s exciting, and every penny you spend goes toward arts education programs in Oakland public schools.

Then we’ll relax over a splendid dinner feast, courtesy of Bocanova’s Executive Chef, John Ledbetter, in the prettiest place in Oakland. So, get your tickets here now!

Online registration is now closed, but there are 5 seats available.
Tickets may be purchased at the door on a first come first serve basis.


Special thanks to our donors: Wells Fargo, Kaiser Permanente, and Gary Knecht! We appreciate their support.
